Greetings Everyone!
I am looking at the Meade 6" vs the Celestron 6".What I am not sure about is the fact that the Meade OTA has a plastic lens cell,dew cap and what else? I don't know if this is beneficial or detremintal as far as thermal stability between the cell and the aluminum tube. The celestron in turn is all metal. Is does anyone have any experience or has had the oppurtunity to compare both scopes? Any input would be appreciated.
